Southam Law is here to help
Keith Southam is the founder and principal attorney of Southam Law LLC. Keith has built a career around helping immigrants. Keith worked as an international student advisor and an ESL teacher before law school. In law school, Keith focused on immigration law, including an internship at the Chicago Immigration Court. After law school, Keith worked for five years as an attorney in a small immigration firm in Chicago. In 2016, Keith founded Southam Law with the dual goals of helping clients understand their cases and of keeping costs down. Keith knows how important these things are. Keith’s grandparents were immigrants, and he was raised by a single mother. This taught Keith compassion for the struggles of immigrants, people who do not speak English well, and working families.
A main goal of Southam Law LLC is to ensure that you understand how immigration law affects your unique situation. Unlike other law offices, Southam Law LLC takes the time to explain the choices you have so that you can make informed decisions about your case. Southam Law LLC also recognizes that another barrier is cost. Lawyers are expensive, and frequently the final costs are not clear in advance. In virtually all cases, Southam Law charges flat fees, which means the costs for legal services are fixed in advance. This eliminates the shock of surprisingly high bills. Southam Law LLC also offers different levels of service for many cases.View success stories
